Dunno if anyone is thinking of playing this when it comes out, with play.com if u pre order the game u can get a free rhino mount, it might not be any good but anything for free is good.

Seems likely they will also be the official partner that gives the 3 day head-start but I'm gonna hold off until that is actually announced

I have actually tried to get into the AoC thing but I simply can't. I just don't find it the least bit interesting but then I've never really been into the whole Conan IP really whereas I was always D&D and Warhammer at school. The mature rating scares me off also - all those kids queueing up to get their daily ration of tits and bums - no thank you.

I also can't see there being nearly as much depth to it as WAR and nothing is going to stop me playing WAR. Like old man Evzy says, with timesinks running around (or crawling in his case) there isn't time to be getting into loads of new stuff. Nope, I'm saving myself up for the main event.

looks like me and the missus will be trying AoC.
the wait for WAR is just too long and we are sorely bored of the other mmo`s around currently.

btw, the vids on the AoC webby show the war rhino in use, charging into combat and fighting while mounted, already much better than DAoC mounts

Must be a girlie thing I preferred the Mammoth to but I did read somewhere that the Rhino is faster with a charge ability - chances are you'll be able to acquire them btoh eventually.

just seen the monthly cost for Conan and am now thinking about cancelling my order.
10 and a half quid is just too much imo.
especially when i will also be paying for Jules` subs as well.
the UK price is way off scale compared to the $15 tag in the states.
why are UK paying so much more????

We pay more because we have to pay VAT on games subs - was introduced in the last couple of years and has been the case on all new games I've tried of late.

Also additional news headstart is opening on 17th May for those with pre-orders (though you do have to pay 5 euro to activate the headstart afaik) and will no longer have a level cap.

I might try this out for a while if I can a) find some up to date and detailed info on crafting, especially Architect. And b) run it on my PC :p

If Architect's can make cash from building I might even put up with putting everything on low just to try it out.

Not much info on crafting as yet as it doesn't begin til level 40 and game only went into early access about 24 hours ago.

So far we're enjoying it, it's not a favourite setting for me for sure but it's interesting enough and the classes are very varied and interesting - it's the first game I've played where melee is actually more interesting to play than casters, we'll see how it develops post level 20 as up til then it's still very much in a beginners zone with alot of easy quests to make levelling fairly quick. Tal and I hit 17 after ~ 10 hours played taking it slowly and taking one quest doing it going back for the next rather than rounding up a whole bunch in one area to make it faster.

are there any plans for a stronghold guild?
what server type are people going for?
we will be playing the pve server as it is most like the normal DAoC servers with pvp in specific areas and nice safe areas for levelling in.

can expect prices to be higher for any MMO where we are paying to a Euro-using company as well, given the thrashing that the pound is taking atm :)

anyone know whether mythic are (yet another) a French based company?

EA Mythic (US company) have said they 'expect' WAR will be around 15 for those subbing to GOA (French company) to have the game run from Dublin (Irish company that makes Guiness).

Me and Tal are playing on Ymir as we went for a pve server with a less popular name in the hope for a quieter and and more pleasant gaming experience.

Not sure if there is interest in a stronghold guild or how many of us there are but happy to see friednly faces

Would like to try the game but am thinking of hanging on for a while for more news on the crafting.

Also not sure how well I will be able to run it

Did you actually go through and pay the 5 euro cost for early access? The pre-order code in itself doesn't give early access and I'm not sure if they are still taking early access payments as at one point that was 'sold out'.

Isnt today release day ?

The whole Early Access thing was very confusing and I'm not even taking part :P

If you managed to get an EA pass then it seems you got 3 days before retail launch + 7 days after. Not including any down times.

You had to have pre-ordered the game then registered your pre-order, then paid 5 but even though we are talking virtual world here there was no virtual number of EA's. So those that hadnt read all the fine print beforehand were left without there Early Access and those that did got in.

Confused ... you will be after the next epsiode of Soap.

Anyway hows the retail build going

It's not released for EU til Friday went live in US today.

The EA thing was very very badly managed as it was never clear the pre-order code and EA was separate unless you read the AoC forums.

Hmm it takes card details for the monthly subs when you register, if you get in the EA the link to download is very prominent on the first page of your account when you log in. There is also a link to showyour curent upgrades which tells you if you are in or not (should also show the Rhino if you had a play.com code).

Hmm I'm not good with screenshots and stuff but the comabt system (for melee) is very involved and complex and alot of fun. There is NO autoattack if you stand there looking at a mob it is going to beat you to death You get 3 basic directional attacks and the mobs have 3 directions of shields and the idea is to hit against their weakest shields but if you do a powerful attack in one direction they will move more shields to that side. On top of that you have 'combos' which also have a direction but which you have to execute a series of attacks to get off (there is an on-screen reminder of which keys to use thankfully) very powerful attacks can generate fatalities which have funky animations like chopping heads off blood splatters on the screen and give you a short duration regen buff.

I've never played a game before were melee was more interesting than casting but in this game it is, though I am playing a caster-type main char becuase as with all game huge aoe damage is fun But the melee classes also have a fair amount of aoe attacks too.
